The 60-story luxury condo complex will be lighting up the Miami skyline every night to honor those still missing under the Champlain Towers South wreckage.
The Miami skyline will be lighting up with hundreds of fluttering flags and the words “One World, One Prayer” every night until the 149 missing Surfside residents are found. Starting tonight, the Paramount Miami Worldcenter, on 851 NE First Ave. in downtown Miami, will be lighting up at the top of every hour for two minutes, from 5 a.m. until sunrise and from sunset to midnight, to honor the victims of the Surfside condo collapse.
The 60-story luxury condo first lit up on Thursday night, June 24, as a sign of solidarity just hours the collapse of Champlain Towers South. The words “One World, One Prayer” will scroll down the 700-foot building on a ticker-tape-style LED screen also featuring waving flags from across the world. These words are the title of an anthem written and produced by Grammy Award winner Emilio Estefan. The song, which premiered last year as a tribute to all COVID-19 heroes, was performed by Bob Marley and The Wailers reggae band featuring Shaggy and Farruko.
“It is a beacon of hope,” Paramount Miami Worldcenter CEO-Developer Daniel Kodsi said in a Wednesday news release. “We are a community in mourning; and we ask the world to pray for the families of the victims of this tragedy, and to pray for hope that more survivors will be found.”
